Face to Face
I remember thinking for a long time if I could just sit down with Jesus, face to face. If I could just walk with Him. If I could just talk to Him. Just like I was sitting down with a friend. My faith would be so much stronger. It would be unmovable as I sat next to the unshakable Creator of my soul.
Even if it was for a moment. It would be something I could treasure and never let go. Life would be so different. My doubts and fears could disappear because I would see Him clearly. Worries would vanish at His sight. My insecurities and feelings of unworthiness would be wiped away from my being and He gazed into my heart.
Oh, how I long for the day that actually happens! Until then I will wait because blessed are those who have not seen and still believe. (John 20:29)
Like Thomas, I have had my share of questions and doubts. Jesus, however, wasn’t afraid to prove to Thomas it was truly Him, in the flesh. Touch my hands. See my side. And it changed Thomas. And although Jesus didn’t reprimand Thomas for questioning Him, He says those of us who believe without seeing, are the ones that are blessed.
Our faith lies in the confident hope and assurance in what we cannot see. (Hebrews 11:1)
I am so excited to look deeper into the heart of Jesus. I am ready to have a more intimate relationship with Him. If you have been joining me here, we just went on the most remarkable journey. Walking with the people Jesus walked with and saw how He impacted them.
Over the next six weeks (starting next week), we are going to sit down with Jesus. In the most intimate way He allows. Time meditating on Him in His Word. This is one of the most important things we can do as believers. It allows us that intimacy. It allows us that face to face time that we crave.
Exploring the treasure trove (a store of valuable and delightful things) into God’s heart we can find our true worth and have our doubts shattered.
We are going to sit face to face with Jesus and Moses. We are going to wipe the tears of the woman at Simon’s house, and we are going to sit by the moonlight with Nicodemus. This is going to be a great time of sharing our own intimate moments. I am so glad you are joining me here.
Before you go. I would love to hear from you in the comments.
- Have you had or do you have times that feel more intimate with Jesus?
- Was it a season of life or a way of life?
- What do those times look like? Do you crave those times?
- Do you miss Jesus when those times seem to be a faded memory?
- What do you do to have new memories with Him?
